Do not have the species. If you post a picture you might get better responses.

That is a Zanthoxylum piperitum. This one confuses me. When you look up "Zanthoxylum piperitum bonsai" this is what it looks like. When you check the article on Wikipedia though, the picture shows a different plant.... and it is a Japanese pepper. Looks to me Wikipedia is wrong - but that is a guess, I do not have sufficient knowledge.

I have no experience with it, I do not find them very interesting for bonsai.

I got one for my mom few years ago. I don't find it suitable for bonsai training, but it can be a nice plant though. It is not hardy and reacts badly when not watered frequently enough.

Just to be clear: I did not mean to say they are not suitable. Theyŕe just not suitable for me.
